The tournament has attracted golfers with disabilities from various parts of the globe.

The  field consists of eight men and two women who are taking part in the event that culminates later Tuesday.

“It is my first time that I am playing in Africa and the course here at Muthaiga Golf Club is world class,” said Kipp Popert, one of the tournament’s favourite and eight time winner of the Golf For Disable circuit. “I didn’t think I’d ever get the opportunity, so I’m really excited to experience Kenya.
